A Little Prayer Request for Rose

by | Dec 7, 2010 | Baby "Rose", Prayer Request | 19 comments

This afternoon I will be taking our little Rose in for another Echocardiogram.   This echo is to confirm whether or not she still has her PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosus), so we can begin making plans for her operation in a couple months if necessary.

We are still praying for her little heart to heal on it’s own.  However,  at her last appointment this past week, her pediatrician was not too hopeful since “In full-term infants, a PDA rarely closes on its own after the first few weeks” and the fact that he can still hear a tiny little something that doesn’t sound quite right.

If all goes as planned, and our little Rose cooperates with the echo tech, we should have the results by tomorrow evening.   

We can’t thank you all enough for your prayers!  May God Reward you!

    We are praying for you all. And sending warm hugs around you and hubby as I know this must be a nerve racking time.

    Well, it can happen. We were followed by cardiology for 20 months and were on our "last chance" echo, when in fact the PDA and VSD closed on their own. Very heart-healthy (but with a benign murmur) at 8 y/o now! I do so hope & pray for good news for you, too. Whatever the case, there is peace in His hands. Sending our love…

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
